Have been looking for ancestors of John Adam McKibben born NC 1801. Found father to be Alex McKibben m. to Agnes Wylie. Agnes' parents were John Wylie and Elizabeth McKibben. Elizabeth's parents were Joseph McKibben and Elizabeth Gibson. Joseph was b. abt. 1716 in County Down, Ireland and died abt. 1761 in Lurgan Townshp, Cumberland County, PA. Now trying to find out if Alex is somehow related the Joseph McKibben family. Thanks for any help.

I am related to the McKibbin family of
Cumberland County, PA and the name Alexander
is used many times in it. Please contact
me at The McKibbin family
of that area spelled their name as McKibbin,
which is in records from the National
Archives as well as my family bible, but
it can be found any which way today.

The father of Alexander McKibben was John McKibben, who died in 1799 in Mecklinburg County, NC. Another son of John's was Thomas, from whom I am descended. I have been trying to determine the lineage of John McKibben for years, but have not been able to connect him with the McKibbens of PA.

Thanks for the information on Alexander's father. Do you have the name of a wife or other children besides Thomas Alexander? In what area did your branch of the family settle? Alexander's family moved to MS in 1846. In the late 1800's some of them moved to East Texas. If you would like to exchange information you can e-mail me at

I show siblings of John to be Ruth McKibben, married name Tennet, daughter Beverely Ann, son Billy or William maybe.

My wife is related to the McKibbens of Henry County Georgia. Your Alexander "Alick"* is one of her ancestors. He was born abt. 1775 married Agnes Wiley June 01, 1796 in Mecklenburg County, North Carolina.

Alexander's father was John D. McKibben born abt. 1728 in Ireland, died August 25, 1798 buried in Cross Creek Township, Washington County Pennsylvania. His wife is recorded as Sarah Colburn born 1730 in County Down Ireland died June 09, 1812 in Harrison County Ohio.

Possible that John D and Joseph were related brothers or cousins, hard to tell at this point.

John D. and Sarah had five children:

Thomas B. abt 1770 Washington County Pennsylvania, died abt 1804 in Mecklenburg County North Carolina. Married Margaret Alexander.

Alexander see above*

Rebecca April 20, 1779 died December 20, 1854 married James Miller May 02, 1796 in Meckelnburg County North Carolina

James abt 1780

John about 1780 married Margaret Alexander
died 1821

Best regards,

Allan R. Jones

I know of a Harvey Nesbitt McKibben b. 1870. I'll have to check some archived paper files at home to see if I have more on him.

Hi ....thanks for looking but....I have found out a little more since I posted that....I think your date would be off for what I am looking for....I am still searching for kin farther back....I know my John Harvey (who went by Harvey) died in 1918..(He too had a son John Harvey).....I show first daughter born in 1882 of the elder John...So he would have to be farther back than 1870.....and his son John was born in 1891. Of course I am not sure on these dates but feel they should be close...
You know with all these Johns I am getting tongue twisted :-)
I am trying to find out a little more on Johns date of birth and some of his and Lucy Bunch's childrens.. DOBS...
John Harveys father was from Ohio his name was Norman Monroe McKibben... lived in Versailles OHIO, it is Norman I now need to find more about.....that is as far back as I know..I don't even have a wifes name...I don't know much about him except where he was from ...I don't know any sibblings listed for my first John....his dad Norman. .But thank you so much for thinking of me....If any of this new stuff looks familar let me know...thanks debby

Have long noticed the McKibben family mixed in with my ggg grandmother, Lucinda Brown Phillips, who is a widow on 1870 Henry Co.Ga. Census. I know there must be a connection as I believe that a McKibben is living in her household? and next door. Anyway, I have much research on my Phillips/Brown line, however, have always wondered about the McKibben/McKibbins. Can you fill me in on this line?
Thanks, Myrna Jackson Findlay, Monroe Co. Ga.
